CAS(E) This Sketch meets Fusion...awesome!

Hi guys!

How are we all?  I hope you've all had lovely weather like we have today.  We took a trip to the coast and had a very tasty roast dinner and an ice cream on the very British!

I'm here today with a card for a challenge medley I absolutely could not miss!  I have been making cards for both the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge and the Fusion challenge over the past few weeks, none of which have been making it onto this blog...time is way too sparse!  However, this evening DOH has gone visiting a friend of our and so I have ten minutes to myself and so here I am :)

I had the general idea for this card before I began, however, it did evolve somewhat and became a lot more 'flowery' than I expected.  It looked a bit plain with an un-embossed white mat, so I embossed it and the embossing folder I chose was a little more fussy than I bargained for (you'd have thought I would've noticed before I used it, but I was FaceTiming my brother at the time and maybe not concentrating as much as I could have been :)) Luckily, it worked quite well!

I don't actually know anyone who is getting engaged, but the sentiment was the best suited!  I'll just keep this card on standby until someone decides to get married :)

Here are the combined challenge inspirations...

Too pretty not to play along with wouldn't you agree?!
